Prefatorv} Note. 



THE present collection of Sir John Tenniel's Cartoons 
is intended to be a selection comprising the more 
memorable of those which have appeared in 
'' Punch " during the last 50 years. The first in the collec- 
tion bears the date of 185^1, and the last is Sir John 
Tenniel's final Cartoon in January, 1901. Short explana- 
tory notes have been provided, but as most of them 
will, perhaps, be unnecessary to those to whom the 
Cartoons themselves are familiar, they have been grouped 
together and combined with the Table of Contents at the 
commencement of the volume, vv^here they can readily 
be referred to.
